Police launch appeal for missing reporter

Police have launched an appeal for help in finding a weekly newspaper reporter amid fears he may have gone missing while walking in the Scottish Highlands.

Clive Dennier, left, of the Strathspey & Badenoch Herald, was reported missing after he failed to turn up to work on Monday morning at the newspaper’s Grantown office.

Police believe 50-year-old Clive, who lives in Inverness, had spoken about going hill walking at the weekend but no one has heard from him since.

Snow on the Cairngorms is currently reported to be at a depth of up to two-and-a-half metres.

Clive is a former news editor for the Highland edition of The Press and Journal, and is understood to originally come from Merseyside.

In an article on the paper’s website, editor Gavin Musgrove said: “Everyone who knows Clive is very concerned by his disappearance as it is completely out of character.

“He would have made every effort to let us know he is safe and well.

“All those who care so much about Clive would ask for anyone who may have seen him or his car since he finished work in Grantown late on Friday afternoon to contact the police.”

There is no information about where Clive may have gone, although he is known to enjoy walking in the Cairngorms, as well as on the west coast.

The reporter drives a silver Volkswagen Polo, registration number SX54 CXD.  Anyone with information is asked to contact the Northern Constabulary.
